Chhattisgarh State largely consists of plateaus streaked
with high range of Satpuras in the North, the river
Mahanadi and its tributaries in the Central Plains
and the Bastar Plateau in the South. The Past (Hills)
give rises to the main river systems- Mahanadi, Hasdo,
Sheonath and Indravati.
Intersected by these meandering rivers and dotted
with hills and plateaus, the state has varied natural
settings of great beauty. To the north of river Shivnath
there were 18 garhs belonging to the Kalchuris and
to the South there were another 18 garhs belonging
to the Kalchuris of Raipur. Hence, the total of these
36 Garhs (Forts) formed the basis of naming this region
as Chhattisgarh. Chhattisgarh lies between 17 - 46'
to 24 - 5' North and 80 - 15' to 84 - 20' East. It
covers an area of 1,35,133 Sq. kms. bordering six
other states - Uttar Pradesh and Jharkhand in the North, Orissa in the East, Andhra Pradesh in the South, Maharashtra in the South West and Madhya Pradesh in the North West.
